We have all known renowned designers D$G, CK, Kardashian, Victoria Beckham which is on an international level. On the Ugandan scene, we also have some fashion gurus like the late Keturah Kamugasa, Ahumuza Brian of A Bryans, Minisipha Muslimah for the ladies.
We still go ahead to have the fashion awards, music awards, and all that red carpet appearance where we expect everyone to put their art and design plus sense of fashion to bare. And when this occurs, the ‘audience’ definitely has to rate the looks. It’s always hard for one to get 100% from everyone. This may not be because the person doesn’t like that particular celebrity. It could be genuine; there is always something that is lacking.
So perhaps the dress could be well designed but with overly done make up; wrong accessory, wrong body shape. Anything! Even for the males whose fashion seems so obvious, the bowtie could be of a wrong choice of colour.
Looking at the trends, seasons change. Pedal Jeans were last seen on market a gazillion years ago. Having baggy pants was the in thing not more than 20 years ago but currently everyone would wonder what is wrong with you if you wore them on and showed up for a date. That’s for the boys definitely.
Those are fashion gurus that we have today. But they can’t keep something trending for more than three consecutive decades! And they equally can’t come up with something that the entire world will agree with. At least a few will come out to criticize and make a few corrections here and there; which is okay actually.
Think about a super source of fashion. That has a design that never fades; that makes unquestionable designs. The one whose designs are appreciated worldwide without second thought, without hesitation, without comments facing no rejection!
That in his might, he created man placing the various body parts in a specific arrangement and manner that is almost universal for everyone but none has ever bothered to change it. Even the most developed make maniquns in the same shape and using the same design over and over the years. Today, just holding a bag at a given point is fashion, that fades over a time and another point gets trendy so the other will look old school fashion. But there isn’t a day when the shape of a human and the outlay design get old school. Because man is and has always been creative, by Allah’s guidance definitely, there isn’t any that has come out to criticize the various places where the various body parts were placed. Plastic surgeries have been done over and over again and amazingly none of the celebrities has ever opted to change the position of the nose from the ‘front’ to the back. And we are still not appreciating THE HIGHEST FASHION GURU?
So simply imagine if you chose to revive a sunnah by smiling at a stranger and when they return the favour, instead of the teeth like we are used to, you would see hair or nails.
He is Al MUSWAWR! THE SOURCE OF FASHION!
